YES!

As you may have noticed from two...count 'em....two...notices on our front page (now that our blog posts also copy to the front AFi page)...the regular edition Outer Space Men figures have arrived at Four Horsemen HQ in New Jersey and will be shipping out soon!

It's been a long wait since these babies were announced on May 1st...I almost can't believe they're almost here!

I'm excited to get these. Finally, a carded version!

But now there's another variant? The Galactic Holiday Edition? I think I would prefer some new figures before a third variant.

Doubt we'll see new ones until after the Scarabus production is finished.

The Infinity set I ordered arrived by FedEx last night. :D

These figures look awesome! And I love the collector-friendly packaging.

Each card back has a picture of the figure's original look in its original packaging from the late '60s, which I thought was a nice touch.

And for those who can't get enough OSM, the Galactic Holiday edition is available on the Four Horsemen's website.

I saw an original Colossus Rex on Ebay a few days ago. It had 30 bids, less than 2 days, and was at $1500.00.

I got my Galactic Holiday editions the other day - very cool. I'm hoping they release new ones soon also, but I guess they gotta make money to cover overhead on the first ones.

Wow, I'm sorry to hear that you guys are still waiting. I thought everyone was supposed to get the Infinity Edition before Christmas.

In their defense, they have a really small set-up, and they've been super busy. I talked to Cornboy the other day for an article I'm writing, and he said they've been swamped for the holidays.

Don't know about Jeff, but they only said that the FedEx orders *should* arrive for Christmas and mine are coming via USPS. I'm not really complaining, while I am anxious for them I'm not going to rush the guys, like you said, they're doing everything themselves and I'm sure the recent snowstorm hasn't helped matters...

Just to be clear, they need no defense from me. I'm not blaming them one bit. I am really excited to finally get the figures...and get just a little bummed each day that passes with no package upon my doorstep. But, I don't blame the guys at all.

Regarding the snow storms, I saw a tweet earlier this week from CB saying they got socked with 30" of snow and couldn't get to the office this week! Yikes!

Plus, I'm sure they're busy getting stuff finished up for Toy Fair which has got to be their first priority right now!

True, and they have to get ready for their exhibition at Toy Tokyo, which runs at the same time as Toy Fair. They have a lot on their plate!

Just an update... Got my shipping notice around 8:30 last night so I would expect the OSM to land (perhaps they've combined my orders) on Wednesday or Thursday now. :D
